Parent Code of Conduct

 

·         I will never ridicule or yell at my child or another participant for making a mistake or losing a competition.

·         I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will not be defeated by the outcome of any game.

·         I will respect and show appreciation for the volunteer coaches, who give their time for the benefit of my child.

·         I will make sure that my child arrives for scheduled games and practices at the time designated by the coach.

·         I will understand team objectives and goals as it relates to development.

·         I will encourage open communication (Player-Coach-Parent).

·         I realize that the team or club can be penalized for my misconduct. If required, I and any of my guests must obey a request by an official or coach to leave the vicinity of the field.

·         I realize any misconduct on my part (or a guest of mine) may result in a hearing and possible disciplinary action and can result in immediate lost of club eligibility for my child and myself.

·         I will not interrupt a coach during a game or practice to resolve troublesome issues. I will discuss these issues privately and discreetly with the coach and if this is not prudent or satisfactory I will contact the appropriate official in the Club.

·         I will inform the coach of any injury or physical disability that may affect the safety of my child or other children.

·         I will learn the rules of the game and policies of my club and league.

·         At all times I will support all players on the team.

·         I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good plays by my child's team and their opponents.

·         I will never question the officials judgment or honesty

·         I will support all efforts to eliminate verbal and physical abuse from the game of soccer.

·         I will not give instructions to players - that is the coach's role.

·         I will help maintain a positive environment.

·         I will make my child feel like a winner by offering praise for competing fairly and doing their best.

·         I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility, intimidation or violence.
